I've been lurking on this site for some time while researching sig guns seeking real world opinions. This forum is the most grounded and respectful that I have ever found. After owning a Sig for a month I now can see why Quality craftsmanship is bound to inspire quality enthusiasts.
I am a new Sig Owner and now I want another.
First I should caveat I was a Walther fan. I drive nails with my PPQ M2 and PPS M2. I adored these guns and then...I purchased at 226 RX.
I had a p320 RX Compact on order but when my local gun shop told me it could be a year based on previous experience I dug in for the long hall. Then I found a Cabela deal I couldn't resist. The 226 RX and 5x the points for a new Sig which basically free ammo. Crossbreed even made me a holster that is about 99% perfect if I choose to carry. That said the .40 slide conversion+.357 barrel+15 round mag might be calling my name for even easier carry and bigger punch...
I'm still breaking in the 226.
My first trip to the range I tested a bunch of different ammo for feel and ease. Then I focused on the sights, the Sig 226 had me 2" low and cut a solid hole out of my target. I thought it must have been the RX at first but using iron sights same thing. Two tight patterns that left a nice sized hole. Thanks to the internet I found out Sig Combat sights work differently than Walther.
I am still not sure I fully understand the sight picture and actual POI but next trip to the range I aim to experientially test and find out (no pun intended).
The Double Action of a Sig has me hooked, I feel so comfortable carrying a firearm where the first shot is extremely intentional and can counteract/use some of that adrenaline of the moment.
I traded my Springfield XD .45 Tactical for store credit planning on putting that to the 320RX Compact; however, the 226 is everything I could have wanted in a Red Dot and more. Thus now I'm considering how to use my $375 credit toward another Sig for easier Carry.
- I am considering now:
- P320 with a subcompact frame or
- P225 for EDC
- - If I ever get a 229, I'm going legion...but I'm not ready to drop that kind of money after just after getting a 226 RX
- Or just sit on it get the 320 RX since my PPS M2 is an exceptional EDC.
I'd love to hear any thoughts.
